The name C-function originally referred to what John Maynard Keynes called "Consumption Functions." These days the "C" is synonymous with community. C-Functions usually take place in Walker Memorial's Morss Hall, but can also be held off-campus.
Each C-function features different cuisines, arts, and activities based on the theme of the night. The Office of Student Life has put on Japan C-functions, LGBTQ C-Functions, as well as Sustainability C-functions to advance the community building mission.
C-Functions run on select Thursday evenings throughout the academic year and are co-hosted by Student Life, the Sloan Experience Committee (under the Sloan Senate), and a club.
